Hm I see although I have no idea what that is yet it sounds simple enough. I'll tell you what I'll research USB encloser see what it looks like and scout for one perhaps Staples has them. I'll grab a hold of one, disable the mod chip as the guide said. I'm gonna beat this thing! This obsession has gone on for far to long it was supposed to be something simple I could solve in a day. Now it's become this hurdle I won't allow it to defeat me I'll beat this just like I did the original Xbox mod.
Connecting the harddrive to your computer is pretty easy. Open the side panel and look inside to see how the Computer's HDD is connected, or the CD drive, they are about the same. If your computer has a secondary IDE HDD or CDrom drive in it, just unplug one of those and plug in the PS2 HDD in it's place (make sure the jumper is set to "Cable Select" on the HDD), then turn on the computer and start winhiip.
If you have the space for it, you can get a HDD Pull-out Tray for a 5.25in bay. Put your secondary HDD in that for easy swapping. I have an extra couple of trays for verious other uses, Secondary HDD/PS2 HDD/Zipdisk... Just Connect the Dock as you would another drive on the IDE cord. Connect the HDD in the tray the same way. Push the tray into the dock and turn on the PC, then use winhiip.
Otherwise, get one of those USB HDD Enclosers or the USB IDE Connecter Cords. Connect the HDD in the encloser, plug it in, and start winhiip. Connecting is much faster this way, and you don't have to worry about opening up the PC. Just be carefull of the cheaper ones, try to get one with an easily replaceable power supply. Brick powersupplies are a pain to replace when it puts out 5v and 12v with a Special Pinout and arn't labeled.
